I’ve generated gerber outputs for my PCBs and realized that there are lots of areas where the exposed copper is covered by silkscreen, potentially preventing solderability. I know that some fabrication houses automatically subtract the (inverted) soldermask layer from the silkscreen layer but many don’t and I’d like to have a general solution to this problem.
sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=de … p_id=33921 suggests that this feature has already been requested for gerbv and Gerbtool already has this feature but the latter seems to be very complicated and I’m clueless how to do layer subtraction.
I’m wondering whether your service automatically fixes this issue, but I’m also very interested about the solution itself so I’d definitely appreciate you describing how to do it.
Thanks in advance!
